Our Winemakers

Bruce Dukes

Chief Winemaker

Bruce, a west Australian native, has enjoyed three decades of valuable winegrowing experience, shared between iconic producers in the Napa Valley and Margaret River. His winemaking philosophy is best described by wine expert Professor Steven Kolpan who noted in his book ‘A Sense of Place’ that, “Bruce Dukes articulates the art and science of winemaking with elegance and ease. Bruce knows that the finest wines are made vine by vine, berry by berry…”

Bruce describes his training in Agronomy at University of Western Australia, and a Master’s Degree from the University of California, Davis, as the foundations of his approaches in sustainable winegrowing. “However, the fun part is layering in passion, artistic and intuitive flair”.

Remi first visited Margaret River in 2007 and never left, joining Bruce’s winemaking team in early 2008. Since then, Remi has worked his way to the role of Senior Winemaker. Remi brings an intimate understanding of the translation of land to wine, and a dogged obsession with constantly pushing quality and style to the next level. Remi is now a living breathing piece of Margaret River terroir.
